Oxwall 1.8.3 beta


Oxwall 1.8.3 beta is there! This is a maintenance release with which we did some platform and feature enhancements. Most notably:

  • We are starting a batch of SEO enhancements that will propagate through several releases and make Oxwall much more search engine friendly;
  • Security: anti-CSFR tokens for forms;
  • Blocked users feature improvement.

Complete changelog is here.

Oxwall 1.8.3 beta is available immediately for beta testers. All developers and designers are encouraged to test their items on the new release to ensure compatibility.

ATTENTION: This is a beta release which is unsuitable for applying on live websites, hence we do not provide any update tools. Please, wait for the official release – it will show up as the update button in your admin area.

The official Oxwall 1.8.3 release is scheduled for May 17.

Thanks for creating with us!
